Quotation From Terry
JDS (Junior Department Store) is Proudfoots non-food department, located on the top floor of the Newby store. We sell a wide variety of products for the home & garden and our happy, friendly and approachable staff team are always on hand to help.
We have recently had a large extension built on the Newby store which has more than doubled the shop floor space for JDS. This has allowed us to increase our product lines to suit the requirements of our beloved customers. The shops layout is very wide and open making it easy for customers to find items they require and navigate themselves throughout the shop.
